Which of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most and why? Initiative. I have a passion for the work I do and I try hard to bring innovative technologies to our firm and our clients by getting myself plugged into various groups and demonstrating to them the use and need for disruptive innovation.

What’s something people might be surprised to know about you? I’m a good singer. I’ve sang in musicals, weddings, funerals and for the past 15 years I’ve helped lead weekly praise and worship service at my church. 

What’s your personal motto? Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life full of peace and joy. On the other hand, my professional motto is: Disrupt yourself before someone else disrupts you. These two are diametrically opposed, but they have always worked for me.
